MADRID: Diego Costa hurt his foot and ankle in Spain’s training session on Sunday but tests showed that the striker sustained no serious injury.

The Chelsea forward underwent a series of tests after having to leave the session.
Costa scored in Friday’s 4-1 win over Israel in European qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
